the footwear market


1.1 Definition and presentation

The footwear sector is a segment of the clothing market and includes all footwear. Shoes can be segmented by end user and by use/type. With regard to the end user, the distinction is based on gender and age group, the second parameter is wider and usually leads to the classification into macro-categories that are hard to define and delimit. According to the use we can find for example: sport, beach, mountain, work. One possible categorization is as follows:

- Formal

- Casual

- Evening

- Sport

The footwear market has doubled in recent decades at a global level, experiencing a real boom, guided by the continuous innovation of both existing players and new brands, able to retain and attract consumers. Italy is among the countries that are experiencing an extremely positive performance, driven by its strong domestic production, consumption and exports. In fact, the country ranks among the first players in all three channels. The gradual interest increase in health and sport and the demographic changes of the territory are factors that will influence the performance of the footwear market. In addition, on the one hand the change in consumption habits aimed at increasing awareness of the environment and on the other hand the threat of the e-commerce segment, will help to shape the image of the market.
